So as I said in my past blog, my hair is gone again. People at my job for the most part all know I have Alopecia, I can't give it to them, and I don't hide my head under scarves and hats and wigs, its just not me. I'm comfortable with myself and the way I look...so anyways I work in the mailroom of a large government building, so I see lots of people a day. This guy from our IT department, that I see a LOT since hes 2 offices down from me and is always shipping computer equipment, came in and the first thing he says is, "Oh...your bald again." I just kind of looked at him, and said 'yea, it feel out again." Then he asked me if I'm going to buy any wigs. I told him no, they itch, and I just don't feel comfortable in them. He then hands me a box, says "I'm sure your boyfriend would prefer you to wear a wig, I know I would." and walked out of the mailroom...ummm...first off, thank GOD I am NOT your girlfriend!!! Second off...that wasn't a very nice thing to say...was he trying to say I look ugly bald? Luckily my goal in life is not to impress him, because apparently I would be failing miserably. I get compliments on my look and my confidence all the time, but when someone says something like that, THATS what gets stuck in my head. One negative takes up the space of all the positives. I told my boyfriend later on in the car and he looked at me and said, "I love you bald or with hair down to your feet, your hair doesn't make you the person you are." Even after my boyfriends kind words, I was still a little mad about what the guy said. I honestly think some people need to go back to a kindergarden classroom so a teacher can tell them what they should already know...If you don't have anything nice to say, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!! I might have changed that around a little bit...but you get what I'm saying ;) Hope everyone is doing well!!

this one lady at my work keeps telling me about this "magical shampoo" that she uses to make her hair thicker, so one day I finally decided to look for it at the store...it was anti-dandruff shampoo...like a REALLY expensive Head and Shoulders. Thanks lady...but dandruff is not a problem I have...

Hey Tamara,
I agree with Paul Im a technician and I work for the government, talk about a group of misfits, old bird boy would fit in great where I work. I think that’s what it is there is just something about technical people; they don’t play well with others. I would just pity him, no matter how much hair he has you can’t buy a great personality.

The sad thing is about 2 years ago I got a tattoo on the back of my neck that says RIP DAD. It stuck out under my shirt and he asked what it was so I showed him. He then showed me his, he lost a daughter that was my age. So we had talked about that for awhile and kind of became friends after that. I just don't understand people sometimes. They just need to learn how to think before they speak.

Thank you Tanya :) Luckily my family and friends are pretty supportive and I've only got the odd and rude comments from co-workers or random people. I've been asked if I'm gay a few times and that question struck me as an odd one. I'm bald, so I'm gay? People honestly need to learn more about life and the way things are. I am not one to judge, I don't care if your gay or straight, but I am a WOMAN that is in love with a MAN...so what if he has more hair than I do? LOL
